Lol. Don't lie, Lindsay. It's not becoming of you ;) You totally knew I'm obsessed... er.. in love... er a huge fan of Jessie Lane! :D (do you think my stalker vibes are coming through? nail biting )

LOL. Yes, yes I do. But Jessie Lane already knows that you're a stalker so I don't think it matters. And I don't know that I would call it lying...I think I need one of these: 

Evil of Love BLOG TOUR!

Monday, February 24, 2014


Welcome to the blog tour for the My Way Series! I freely admit that the first thing to draw me in was the cover of Cree. The guy is so georgous that I had to know what the book was about! 

And it was a bonus that the book sounds awesome.

Surrender to Fire Blog Tour!

Skylar Kade has a new book coming out! If you're into steamy reads with alpha heroes, check this out!

One scorching-hot lesson could leave her begging for more.

The Maison Chronicles, Book 3
Reeling from the double whammy of her Dom’s abandonment, and accusations of colluding with a plagiarizing author, all literary agent Camille Winter wants is some low-profile, drama-free quality time.

Just as she’s settling into a Maison Domine cabin with her to-be-read pile and a full slate of spa appointments, she finds herself sweet talked into playing topless assistant so some Dominant can run a BDSM educational demo.

Architect Damien Winter is on a relationship hiatus, so he focuses his dominant energies on teaching BDSM classes. A chance encounter in Maison’s parking lot with a woman who angrily insists she’s no sub—though every line of her body screams otherwise—turns shocking when she winds up as temporary replacement for his demonstration partner.

Damien is unprepared for the way her beautiful submission gets under his skin. And Camille never thought she’d fall, hard, for just the kind of man she’s sworn off. But when her ex’s vague threats turn serious, Damien fears he’s already lost the chance to claim her for his own.

REVIEW: First Moon by Michelle Fox

20601464First Moon by Michelle Fox
My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars

Book Description: 

Audrey Levine, thinks being bitten by a wolf is just another day on the job. She couldn’t be more wrong...

A wildlife rehabilitation specialist, Audrey usually does all the rescuing, but now she's the one who needs help. In ten days, she’ll be covered in fur and howling at the moon while the werewolf who bit her is out there waiting to claim her as his own...whether she wants to be his or not.

The biggest problem? The curvy beauty doesn’t know any of this.

Werewolf, Tao Black, is the strong, silent type, which is an asset in his role as pack enforcer. Hot on the trail of a wolf gone bad, he runs into trouble and is saved by Audrey. Realizing her situation, he vows to protect Audrey from the wolf who bit her, no matter what it takes.

But that means going against his alpha’s orders and that might get them both killed.


Release Day Sale! Only 99¢ !

Yesterday, I was honored to receive an arc copy of Milly Taiden's alter ego, April Angel's newest release Their Second Chance! It released today and guess what?! It's only .99¢ ! You definitely need to grab it now! 

After five years with a man she loved, Ariana Parker held divorce papers in hand. From the moment she met him, Nick was the only man to make her body burn and fill her heart with joy, but somewhere along the way, they lost their ability to communicate—in any language. 
Nick Parker lost the woman he loved to the trials of conception. Their inability to cope with their failure broke down their relationship and their friendship. And now, he’s left with a woman he lusts after, longs for, and doesn’t know how to reach. 
One locked door and plenty of time to hash out their problems will either leave them broken forever or might just be the glue that holds them together. 

Mature reader warning: Adult content including but not limited to: Raw sexual language and actions. 

I just finished Their Second Chance! I started shortly after the author sent me a copy this afternoon and I couldn't put it down! It was amazing! This was a great and emotional tale that enlightened me to fertility issues that I previously didn't know much about. It really is an eye opener to the things some couples have to go through to have a baby and it really made me feel so fortunate that the births of my own children went better than they could have. I do know what its like to have an emergency c-section so when that part came about I had my own flashbacks and I felt that Ms. Angel did a great job expressing the worries and fears that can come with that experience. The relationship between Nick and Ari was so strong that even though they felt the only option they had was divorce, all it took was a little communication to show that their love was enough if they made it so. With a few changes and more effort on their parts, their marriage was more than salvageable. They took these steps and worked through their fears and doubts because they both knew that the other was the one for them. It was a heartbreaking, beautiful, soul touching story. Yeah that was kinda mushy but that's how I was left feeling once I finished! :D

And I'm kinda embarrassed I didn't realize right away that April Angel is the pen name for Milly Taiden! I've read another book by April and loved it too! I feel so silly! Lol

Thank you to the author for providing me with a copy of her newest book! 

View all my reviews

Hi! I'm Milly (AKA April Angel) I love to write sexy stories. They're usually either paranormal or contemporary with a large dose of heat. My paranormal stories can be anything from wolf-shifters (my favorites) to witches, demons and anything in between. I was born the prettiest part of the Caribbean known as the Dominican Republic. Currently, I live in New York City with my hubby, the bossy kiddo and our little dog "Needy Speedy". Don't ask. When I'm not working some really long hours at the day job, or hanging out in the awful life-sucking invention known as Facebook, messaging my bestie in the UK or shopping with my sis Julie, then I can be found watching scary movies. Buuut when I'm not doing that, I'm usually writing because the voices won't shut up.
I am addicted to shoe shopping, chocolate (but who isn't, right?) and Dunkin' Donuts coffee.
Come by and visit me! I love to meet new readers!

I am so excited to take part in this blog tour for one of my favorite paranormal authors, Milly Taiden! She sure knows her way around sexy shifters ;) 

Mission: Don’t fall in love

After an explosive night of passion during a scenting ceremony, Karla Alves is sure she was just a one night stand for the man she'd been crushing on for years. She teased him and pleased him, and Nate hasn't been around since. Her fear of becoming clingy kept her from risking her heart and asking for more than a few hours of skin sin.

Mission: Crack her walls

She. Is. His. Nathan Wolfe marked Karla. His mate. Deeply involved in pack politics, Nate has had to stay away. When his sister warns that Karla needs him more than he thinks, he'll discover a bundle of secrets only his wolf can sniff out. But getting the woman he cares about to let down her guard may prove to be his undoing.

Mission: Embrace the bite
With Karla's wayward sister wreaking havoc and friends needing more of his time than ever, Nate will have to rearrange his priorities if he ever hopes to earn Karla's trust. But will time with her be enough? Only true love and a wolf's promise can hold together a relationship created with a bite, a scenting, and a hope for tomorrow.

Once again, Ms. Taiden has written a steamy, can't put it down, hot shifters and great family dynamic book! A Mate's Bite is a great follow up in the Sassy Mates series. At the start, we go back to the beginning of Scent of a Mate to the scenting ceremony to see what happens when Nate happens upon Karla setting up to view the proceedings. And like in the first book, things get steamy and fast! Karla has had a big 'ol crush on Nathan Wolfe for the last seven years. But since she grew up with a mother who was screwed in the head when it comes to men, she has built up an emotional wall hoping to not follow in mommy dearests footsteps. This is not good, seeing as Nate has known for the last seven years that Karla is his mate. He's tried to be patient and wait for her to realize he wants more than friendship with her but she's just taking too dang long! So he sees his opportunity during the ceremony and he takes it. Oh boy does he take it! ;) Unfortunately, pack business calls him away and he gets to see very little of Karla over the next few weeks, which gives her just enough time to over think things and keep those walls in tacked. So, what's a hot, loving shifter like Nate to do?! Well, he does anything and everything he can to knock those walls down, while also trying to protect his human mate from the threat that is still going on from the first book. And let me tell you, Nate doesn't mess around. He goes all out and it was so much fun seeing him show her she belongs to him and that's that! I love Ms. Taiden's writing style and this book was just as great as the others I've read. She definitely knows how to write a steamy yet captivating romance. We get to see Karla come to some conclusions about love and family and take that step to claim what's rightfully hers. Nate! Oh Nate! He is one hot and possessive wolf! I like that while we get a conclusion for Nate and Karla, we still have the ongoing plot from the first book with the neighboring shifter pack that I assume will be an ongoing plot throughout this series. I am really looking forward to reading the next book to see which brother will have to figure out how to claim his mate! :)

Milly Taiden (also writes as April Angel) was born in the prettiest part of the Caribbean (to her) known as the Dominican Republic. Currently, she resides in New York City with her husband, bossy young son and their little dog Speedy.

When she’s not working full-time, texting with her best friend Heidi in England, chastising her son for pulling the dog’s ears, shopping with her sister Jewel or watching scary movies with her husband, she can be found writing on her laptop.

She’s addicted to shoes, chocolate, Dunkin Donuts coffee and JIMMY THOMAS covers!!!

For those of you who have not yet read the first book in this series, Scent of a Mate, here are the links for it as well! You won't want to miss out on this series! It's a hot and steamy ride ;)

Mission: Scent a Mate 

Jordan Alvarez knew that a promise to her best friend involved staking out the local wolf pack's scenting ceremony and recording the graphic details, but she was the writer and the only one with the balls to finish the task. No one would know that four human women had sneaked proof of their rituals, or at least, that was the plan until Aric Wolfe showed up. 

Mission: Stake a Claim 

Aric Wolfe knew his baby sister was up to something, and expected her best friend, Jordan, to be in on the chaos. He finally had an opportunity to lay claim to a mate that had been under his nose for years. Jordan's scent called to both the man and the animal, and he was done fighting the call of the beast. It was time to mark his mate. 

Mission: Survive an Alpha 
When a good intention creates a problem for the Wolfe family, Jordan finds herself being stalked by a woman intent on claiming Aric as her own. Battle lines will be drawn, love will be put to the test, and Aric will have to fight Jordan's strong personality to keep her alive. Two alpha hearts seeking control will either find the balance or risk losing their love forever.

You’ll have to excuse the song lyrics, but it seemed to fit since we’re talking about Jessie Lane’s Big Bad Bite series!

And I just couldn’t help myself since her upcoming book is Walk On The Striped Side with tigers and tigers are found in Jungles…yes, I’m a dork. But! The good news is I pulled out GNR instead of the Detroit Tigers. Because anyone that knows me from Goodreads knows that I’m a HUGE baseball fan!

Review: Archer's Voice by Mia Sheridan

18596596Archer's Voice by Mia Sheridan

Book Description:

You Really Got Me by Kelly Jamieson

Today we're spotlighting Kelly Jamieson's book YOU REALLY GOT ME.

And needless to say, Nikki is really excited to read this. Anyone who has read our blog (or reviews) in the past knows that Nikki is all over a book if it's steamy. 

Well, can you blame me!? I love sexy times in books!

LOL. That's what we were saying. 

Yes but you were making it sound like I'm the only one that likes sexy times in books. 

That wasn't the intent, but it's definitely true that you're pickier about it than the rest of us. 

That's not true!

Um...I seem to recall you saying no to a book recently because even though it sounded good, it had no sexy times. 

Well...can you blame me? Sexy times are HOT!

Anyway, let's get back to the book....

REVIEW: What Goes on Tour by Claire Boston

19358557What Goes on Tour by Claire Boston
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Book Description: 

 What goes on tour, stays on tour … or does it?

Few people know that socially awkward Adrian Hart is actually rock god Kent Downer, and that's the way Adrian likes it. His privacy is essential, especially now that he has guardianship of his orphaned, ten-year-old niece, Kate. But when the nanny quits in the middle of his tour Adrian finds himself in a bind.

Until Libby Myles walks into his life.

Libby has only ever wanted to become a full-time author and prove to her parents that she can make it on her own. On the surface, the temporary job as the nanny for Kent Downer's niece looks perfect—the pay is fabulous, the hours are short and Kate is a big fan—it's the rock star that's the issue.

Arrogant and way too attractive for anyone's good, Kent Downer has enough swagger to power a small city. But when he's out of costume he's different—shy and uncertain. For Libby it's a far harder combination to resist. She needs to find a balance between work, writing and ignoring her attraction to the rock star, because if she falls for him, it could mean the end of her dream.

But when a horrible scandal is unleashed—putting young Kate in danger—there's more heat between Libby and Adrian than just sexual attraction. Libby must figure out if Adrian ever cared for her, or if it was all just part of the show …

On the first day at his new job at a law firm in Scottsdale, Arizona, Zolt comes face to face with his hallucination, Irelyn Wilkes. Their fateful connection, and explosive passion for each other pulls them together, and this time, Zolt refuses to let her slip from his life.
